Renting apartment in Minsk and in Kiev: my review
In fact the reason that it's not always easy to find a nice apartment in Minsk or in Kiev around 40 USD / night is that you do not really make money renting it so cheap! You hardly get payed for the maintenance, taxes, cleaning and so on!
I have to admit that for that price it is even more than I expected. I was last year in Kiev and I got apartment for $60/day and by looking for your offer either you have to raise your price (oh, no, do not do that I might be back) or agency in Kiev well overpriced their apartment (and I guess this is true).
May be just few word of advice if you are getting more foreign tourist renting apartments in Minsk. There is only one knife and not table knife, but cutting knife. Another thing, may be you need to put a power bar. I am using my laptop in the kitchen, because here is a table. But there are only two single electrical outlets here, so every time I need to charge my computer (it has weak batter) I have to unplug kettle. This is just minor inconvenience, but it may help you down the road. And another small thing, most western people, if they do their breakfast, the like scramble eggs, there is no frying pan in apartment. And another small thing, it would be nice to have kind of kitchen cloth. Just to wipe wet dishes or hands in the kitchen.
Those are very minor things, but they may help you down the road. Anyway for that price of Minsk apartment I am more than happy. Thank you for your help:
If I will find more thing I would like to have I will definitely let you know.
Actually, but this is a bit more expense, and I do not know, if you have such things in Belarus, most likely you have. Instead using stove, it would be nice to have small toaster oven. For one person it is very practical. I use it very often at home. But that would be already almost full package.
Please, do not take me wrong, I stress again for that price I am more than happy. Those are just the things you may consider for the future.
